TimCNTowerML

After snow in Cleveland postponed both Blue Jays games over the weekend, it was supposed to be all systems go for their return to Toronto on Monday.

Security is now taping off areas and putting up barricades on the south side of the tower, she said. And it's not just a question about the field conditions, but about safety for people trying to get to the game; the CN Tower itself has been closed and the area around it cordoned of.

There have been no injuries reported yet.

The CN Tower has been closed due to the extreme weather following reports of chunks of ice falling off the tower, endangering buildings and passengers below.

The Royals have already had three games (one in Detroit and two in Kansas City) postponed this season.

" The Toronto Blue Jays are now working with CN Tower and Toronto Police Service to assess the conditions around Rogers Centre and the viability of playing tonight's game against the Kansas City Royals", The Toronto Blue Jays said in a tweet issued Monday around 1 p.m.

The Blue Jays tweeted at 2 p.m. that they are assessing the situation and will make an announcement about if the game will be played.

As of Monday, freezing rain transitioned over from freezing to regular rain, which created travel issued during the Monday morning commute.
